Thorogood Blues

Learn rock classics the fun way!


This DVD contains a series of lessons from a guitarist with 30 years experience playing, performing and teaching rock guitar.  The goal was to create a series of instructional DVD videos light on ego and unnecessary commercial filler.  The emphasis is on easy to follow lessons full of bang4buck value with each DVD being the equivalent of many individual private lessons.  This series covers each lesson completely through demonstrations, explanation and close up views of the fingerings.  You progress at your own pace - playing easier parts first and picking up more difficult parts or leads over time as you progress.

This DVD series includes lessons that are designed to benefit a wide ranges of ages and abilities.  Good basic guitar abilities are a prerequisite of this series and it is geared toward a range within the intermediate category.  This series does NOT include any TAB or written material - its designed to teach thru visual and audio instruction and demonstration as well as training the ear toward the ultimate goal of being able to pick out songs by ear.  The series focus is on the fingering hand, while picking hand shots are included when necessary.

NOTES ON Thorogood DVD:  
Great riffs & songs!

This DVD is really a good intro to standard blues slide, open tunings as well as general blues George Thorogood style.  But these are classic rockin Blues songs that can be even be played acoustic players but is very fun electric with a bit of overdrive to dirty things up and add sustain.  As in most blues the songs normally have just a few chords but the key is in the tunings, the notes being picked, the right hand rhythm technique as well as the real 'blues feel' that keeps the blues enthusiast playing for hours on end.

Who Do You Love covers Open E tuning and the Bo Diddley Beat as well as standard blues progression and it basic alternate.  After tuning back to standard for I Drink Alone and 1 Bourbon/Scotch/Beer for some non-slide based down home blues riffs we go back to slide and alt tunings with Open G with Bad to the Bone.  Then we go into Open D tuning on the blues standard with 'The Sky is Cryin' done in true Thorogood manner as a true slide blues primer. So this DVD is especially recommended if you want to get into some electric blues slide and get the low down on Open Tunings for slide, or just love the Blues, Thorogood Style!
